We went here twice over our weekend away in Taupo. The food was pretty good with average prices and we found the service outstanding. There was a long wait for food as they were packed full, but the waiters/waitresses were very attentive despite the business. We were thoroughly impressed by the service

This almost American family diner with lake views doesn't quite make it. It obviously caters for families, but lacks that 'special' atmosphere. The food selection has plenty of options, some a bit expensive for the average family, and a good drinks list. Our food was competetently served, without fuss and was nicely presented and well cooked. There is no 'chef's... More

This was an awesome restaurant to go to for breakfast. The staff were amazing and so friendly and helpful. They gave me exactly what I needed asked for without any issues. (I have food intolerances). Was also very reasonably priced. So good.

We dined here on a Monday night and it was packed - very popular. It isn't really our style of dining, we prefer smaller, more intimate places. Here it is busy/buzzy, with concrete floors. Nice warm fire for a cold night. If you want to dine outside they provide blankets for warmth. The service is excellent, it has a very... More

We attended for brunch on a cold winters day. The menu was very varied - loads on offer. The only thing was the "specials" advertised outside were nowhere to be seen inside the restaurant - or referred to by the wait staff. Good service, good food, cozy atmosphere.

Called in at Dixie Browns for lunch... Great food and location. Roast chicken sandwich and Welsh Rarebit.... Both delicious. Well worth the visit!

On a cold winters day, sit in front of the fire, looking out to the lake and mountains and enjoy your meal.

Came here twice, once with a group of 5 of us, staff were great, up for a laugh and willing to take pictures for us even though it was really busy. It was quite slow in getting the food out to us. But it was worth the wait when it did arrive. We all really enjoyed the food, I had... More
